What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Washing Hands.jpg

Ministry Focus: This arts internship is meant for individuals or groups of individuals who want to grow in their area of gifting. It is our passion at AV to use the arts and help you discover, develop and maximize your gift for God's glory. We typically provide training in spiritual formation, music, drama, art, illusions, dance, telling your story, puppetry, preaching, reaching the urban poor and just about anything that you can offer! You will work with gifted local Christian nationals and missionaries with years of experience in various forms of urban arts evangelism.

Where: This is a focused outreach in and around Ntcheu, Malawi. Malawi is one of poorest countries in the world yet described as the “warm heart of Africa.” 

With whom: Trained and led by Mark Sorell (pictured) and other ACTION Ventures staff with resource volunteers from Calgary, Canada

Q & A with ACTION Ventures leaders

1. Describe what this team trip to Malawi will look like.

Participants will join a team of 6-10 people July 2-7 in Calgary to prepare and then travel to Malawi and serve with the ACTION field workers there July 8-28. The team will then travel back to Calgary for a debrief and farewell July 29-31. While serving, the team will use the arts (music, drama, art, storytelling, object lessons, testimonies, preaching and so on) to communicate the Gospel and equip national Christian workers in the villages surrounding the town of Nchteu. We will assist in feeding the communities who have been devastated by famine and pray for people and assist in discipleship. We will also learn from the Malawians and seek to integrate what we’ve learned into life at home. 

2. Please list specific skills an intern may expect to develop during this trip. 

  • Ability to apply Scripture in ministry settings. 

  • Ability to effectively and creatively communicate one’s faith one on one and from a platform

  • Ability to express a biblical perspective and response regarding global missions

  • Ability to maximize one’s God-given gifts

  • Ability to lead effectively and collaborate well with teammates 

  • Ability to lead be a godly example, lead people to Christ, disciple them, and mobilize them for ministry

  • Ability to network with pastors, Christian workers and ministries around the world

3. What are some key lessons from your ministry and walk with the Lord that you want to impart to the team members to help them as they consider their own individual call to missions or vocational ministry?

  • Each person has a unique blend of gifts, talents, experiences, and personality traits that God wants to use to bring light to the darkness!

  • There is much joy in serving others.

  • Creativity within us flows from our Creator and naturally longs for expression in our grey  world!

  • Culture and diversity can be a beautiful thing.

  • Learn to persevere and praise God through struggle.

  • Take some risks and step out of your comfort zone.

  • Stay anchored in the Word of God. They don’t call it “the Words of Life” for nothing!

  • Fruitfulness comes from abiding in Jesus.

  • Jesus has given us His authority to accomplish His purposes.

Training debriefing
Our training is focussed primarily on the first 3 months with practical opportunities throughout. It is a missions internship with a focus on the arts and that is evident throughout. While we use the arts, the main thing is to grow in intimacy and obedience in your relationship with God. Without this, performing for God, makes no sense. We cover themes such as Sharing Your Story (Testimony), Personal Evangelism, Bible, Theology, Cross-Cultural Missions, Team Building, Conflict Resolution, Personal Coaching, Team Meetings, Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry, Street Ministry, Worship Leading, Music (instruments, vocals, technical), Dance, Drama (mime, drime, writing), Puppets, Illusions, Chalkart, Language, Gift Development, and more. Debriefing continues through training, with weekly coaching in growth areas, daily team meetings, internship interviews with staff and overseas hosts. Key debriefing times are at Tune Up (Nov - 3rd week), Focus (April - 3rd week) and Wrap Up (June - 1st week). Part of the budget is an overseas visit (Feb) which works as a midterm internship interview.
